Carl Maria von Weber

November 18, 1786 - June 5, 1826
born in Eutin, Oldenburg, Germany, composed during the Romantic period
Carl Maria von Weber (1786-1826) was a German composer, conductor, and writer of the Romantic era who became an indispensible figure in the development of German opera. Best known for composing Der Freischütz, Euryanthe, and Oberon, Weber also wrote important concert works, such as two concertos for clarinet and two symphonies, as well as incidental music, chamber pieces, and songs. Weber's style has Classical roots, though his surprising harmonies, unexpected key changes, and evocative scoring were important innovations for his time, and his reliance on folklore and fantastic literature for inspiration proved influential for other composers of the Romantic period. ~ Blair Sanderson, Rovi

Emma Johnson , the clarinetist in this composition, ranks right up there with the world's top clarinetists !

What is often not mentioned or largely forgotten is that von Weber was a second cousin (I think) of Konstanze Weber, Mozart's wife.

Wonderful rendition, WOW!

von Weber deserves much more recognition, I feel. Having played most of the major clarinet repertoire, I honestly enjoyed doing his Grande Duo Concertante as much as anything I ever played.

I can't get over the fact that his middle name is Maria! He is a great composer and everything, but still! Maria!

There is a special exuberance to the Andantes in von Weber's Clarinet Concerti. I highly recommend the first too.

I play clarinet at my school in band. The teacher underestimat e s me and always puts me on the very minor parts and puts the other clarinetists on the large major parts. I'm scared of her and don't want to tell her I can play just as well as them.

Weber's Clarinet Concerto NO.2 is oneof my all-time favorites, love to play it.
Report as inappropriate
This track is mislabeled by Pandora. This is the 1st movement of the Bassoon Concerto in F Major, Opus 75. The Andante and Rondo Ungarese (Hungarian Rondo) is a very different piece...more of a melodramatic show piece than this concerto. The clarinet concerti/con c e r t i n o s fall somewhere between the two in style. (I personally love the Andante and Hungarian Rondo and was a little disappointed to just hear the concerto when it came up on my Pandora station...)

I fell in love with his music. So beautiful. It's heaven to my ears. I wish I have the skill to play his music perfectly.

During the Romantic period Weber was the most popular composer.

Hear the Reginald Kell version of this, if you can find it. He transformed the very instrument. A pal of Denis Brain's too.

An innovative composer who keeps you guessing!

von Weber puts any clarinetist through the hoops. All his clarinet works are challenging, and a delight to play.

Laird Green:

In Weber's Concertino, the clarinetist is Sabine Meyer.

I was a young, would-be prodigy... clarinet, specifically . . . The first solo I learned was Mozart, of course, but when I found Carl Maria von Weber, I fell in love... the darkness, the passion, and yet the timid beauty, it was all there and exactly what I needed... And, 22 years later it still is...

When I'm looking for something to listen to, I hardly ever think of Carl Maria von Weber. And that's a shame, because he wrote a lot of beautiful music that I always enjoy at the time (and then I always forget). Thanks for the reminder. Ed
